How Does Flat Fee MLS Listing Work?

If you’re wondering how to list a house on MLS by owner, you’re in the right place. That’s because at Skara Realty, we offer flat fee services to help sell your home without paying unreasonable and unnecessary fees to an agent.

Most agents charge a 5 or 6 percent commission on listing and selling your home, which can cost you $18,000 on an average $300,000 Chicago home. Yet you can accomplish the same thing starting at just $245 dollars when you list with Skara Realty. Check out our exclusive packages to see what’s included.

So why doesn’t everybody use a flat fee MLS listing service? Doesn’t everyone want to save money?

Flat fee real estate brokerages are quickly gaining popularity over traditional real estate agencies. Some people don’t use them simply because they aren’t familiar with them. Others think showing their homes themselves is too difficult or time consuming. But at Skara, we say if you have a phone and are able to come to the door, you can sell your house while saving thousands of dollars.

Benefits to Flat Fee MLS Listing with Skara Realty:

● Know exactly how much you’ll pay upfront to sell your house

● Put saved dollars toward the cost of your new home

● An experienced agent handles all the contracts and paperwork for you

● Gain just as much exposure as you would with a traditional realty

● Expert support available 7 days a week

One thing to note is that even when using a flat fee real estate broker, you will still be responsible for the buyer’s agent’s commission. But you set the commission, which usually runs in the 2 to 3 percent range.

So if you’re ready to get started selling your home while saving thousands, head on over to see what packages are available to you. Or call (630) 800-3008 and we’d be happy to answer your questions and walk you through the process.
